Last evening I was driving home....as I turned down the road leading to my development I saw what I thought were deer "jumping" in a field on the right side of the road.  There were two large ones and two smaller.  One of the larger ones jumped across the road and I got a better look as I was driving past....he had a long tail and large ears...not like the whitetails I normally see.  Was this a deer do you think?

Do you have anything else in your area that might resemble deer? I have noticed our deer are a little lighter than usual in color. I have to wonder if that is any indicator of the upcoming winter. Has anyone ever heard anything like that?

Actually...I'm almost positive they were deer.  I saw a few of the same type right around my house a few days ago.

As for the color...I believe that color changes in various animals are indicitive of weather changes....but I'm not sure if a lighter color would mean a harsher or milder winter.
